Pamphlets of Protest: An Anthology of Early African-American Protest Literature, 1790-1860
Richard Newman, Patrick Rael, Phillip Lapsansky
Psychology Press, 2001 - History - 326 pages
Between the Revolution and Civil War, African-American writing became a prominent feature of both black protest culture and American public life. Although denied a political voice in national affairs, black authors produced a wide range of literature to project their views into the public sphere. The editors examine the important and previously overlooked pamphleteering tradition and offer new insights into how and why the printed word became so important to black activists during this critical period.
